Going After the Small Details

I started this week talking about going after the small details when confronted with an area with no good clouds, light or in this case snow. Well it seemed fitting to end the week with examples of just that. I’ve noticed that my mind tends to go towards geometric lines and shapes. Perhaps that’s why Aviation is so appealing to me because airplanes are nothing but lines and shapes. Now the ones in the middle with the T shaped spar intrigue me more than the rest. I have no idea what that tool is for, it’s three feet tall and 2inches in diameter, but between where it was hidden and the light on it, it made for a great subject. All shot with a D3, 24-70 AF-S f/2.8, and Lexar Digital Film

Looking Through the Windows

I couldn’t really think of a snazzier title for this one, it’s basically what it is. Windows are great for shooting purposes both for looking through and seeing what’s being reflected. The choice is figuring out what story to tell. Using the D3 and 24-70 AF-S F/2.8, I kept things simple by selecting the areas that were being lit up by the light coming through the other windows. Without using scrims or HDR I kept things simple by just going after that natural light.

Ghost Town Steeple

For the last couple days i have been thinking about a nearby ghost town. Why I’m not quite sure, seeing how i went there not long ago. Just one of those things that got stuck in my head and i guess you could say this is how i wanted it unstuck. Thankfully it provided some more time to play with B&W conversion on this church steeple. I can’t ever complain about having time to play with images.
